Nothing Fancy, but Will Do The Job,
This review is from: AmazonBasics Universal Camera Case FF Black (Camera)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Amazon makes its entry into the camera case market with a new range of cases. This model is suitable for larger compacts - my Canon G9 is a good fit, and not too tight.
Internal dimensions measure roughly: 45mm (from to back) x 75mm (side to side) x 120mm (bottom to top)
It's made from the same neoprene rubber inner with faux velvet internal covering and rip-stop nylon outer covering as the LowePro cases, and it's not hard to see who they're trying to emulate.
Padding is generally good, although the flap cover isn't padded, so if the case were to fall on its top, your camera wouldn;t be afforded as much protection as it would falling at any other angle.
I have to say, at this price point, they've not done a bad job. The memory / battery pocket on the front is secured with a rather cheap style of zipper which won't last as the genuine YKK zippers used in LowePro cases, but that's not a major issue. The main flap is secured with Velcro, and that generally doesn't fail over time. The stitching on all seams looks to me adequate, but only time and extended use will tell how durable it is. I will say that the stitching is well finished, and there are no obvious loose threads which might signal the start of a problem.
There is no weatherproof cover (unlike the LowePro Apex series) and the velcro closing belt-loop isn't as fancy, but it is perfectly serviceable.
It comes with a small lanyard, but it has no 'tightening' slider, so not really suitable for secure wrist attachment, and it's not long enough to go round the neck. No shoulder strap is provided.
Overall, a good, solid case which cuts a few corners to provide a more economical alternative to the LowePro equivalent, but without compromising basic functionality. At this price level, I think it should be on your shortlist for consideration.
